Summary
"The first philosophy of technology, constructing humans as technological and technology as an underpinning of all culture. Ernst Kapp's 1877 Elements of a Philosophy of Technology is nothing less than the emergence of early elements of a cybernetic paradigm. Kapp applies the theory of organ projection to various areas of the material world--the axe externalizes the arm, the telegraphic system the neural network--studying the human body and its relationship with the world that surrounds it." -- From the publisher
